I’ve had a few people asking me how my new novel is coming along, so I thought I’d just say a few words about where things stand.
The novel is about a woman’s relationship with her father as he starts to lose his memory and starts to relive his traumatic experiences as a tail gunner in RAF bombers in World War Two as if they were happening in the present. It’s been a few months since I finished a first draft, but it was quite clear when I read it through that a few things needed to fleshed out, which meant there was more writing to be done. And then, when I’d finished that, I needed to take stock of the whole thing and do some editing. At about that time, as sometimes happens, other things in my life had to take priority over writing (see my post Life Imitates Art from last month).
